Searches on my Conveyancing Quote

What is included in a local authority search covering Blackham? There are two parts to a local authority search – Local Land Charges search and CON29. The second part of the search – Enquiries of the local authority – supplies information relating to whether the roadway abutting the property is public or private, proposals for new roadways, rail schemes or planning approvals relating to the house. The search can also include outstanding statutory notices, breaches of planning or building regulations or the existence of a compulsory purchase order. Environmental factors, such as whether the house stands on contaminated land or in a Radon gas affected area are also covered but see out comments on Environmental Searches also.

I am advised that the official local Searches in Blackham will show if the land is contaminated. Is that accurate? That is not right. Whilst it is correct that Local Authorities are now in the process of identifying polluted ground and recording these land parcels on registers – this is a process which will take a many years to deliver upon. Needless to say any ground comprised within these areas will be difficult to sell in the future. Unfortunately these records although disclosed by any Con29 Searches are likely to be incomplete.

Apart from showing that the land in Blackham is connected to the mains water supply and mains drainage what other information does a a CON29DW include? A Drainage & Water Enquiry shows to a new interested party that the house they are buying does not need a “build over consent” because the previous owner has constructed an addition to the house adjacent a public drain. It also shows a raft of other details such as water quality and historical evidence of internal sewer flooding.

General Conveyancing Tips

How long between exchange and completion? This is usually two weeks, but does not have to be. You can request a longer time if you are trading trading down and have a lot of items to clear. You can quicken the process if it is a first time buy. You may be able to exchange and complete simultaneously. However your choice depend on what  others in the chain will comply with.

Always check what you are purchasing? We will always send you a document known as the ‘title plan’ (sometimes called filed plan}. This will show the full outline of the property you are buying – the boundary will usually be marked red. One of the biggest mistakes a customer makes is not checking the plan properly. It is a best to visit the house to check that what is shown on the plan agrees with what you think you’re buying on site. All too often customers mistakenly think that a piece of land at the side or rear of the land is theirs,only to later discover that the legal title to the land parcel doesn’t include this area. Always be satisfied that the title plan matches the physical position at the property.

What are the title deeds? The title deeds are the documents showing ownership of a house or flat. Historically these were originally paper documents – there are known as ‘unregistered title deeds’ but now the Land Registry stores evidence of the title electronically – this is referred to as a registered title. The unregistered title deeds are usually retained by your mortgage lender or solicitor. If these deeds are lost this can cause problems. Registration has been compulsory for all dealing with the property for some times now although this was brought in at different times across the country. For the time period in Blackham you should check with your conveyancer. Thankfully most deeds are now registered and cannot be mislaid. The cost of obtaining ‘official copies’ of the title are included in the conveyancing quote.

FAQs in Blackham

Are you on the panel of West Bromwich Building Society? Yes we act for all major lenders and many smaller lenders.

We note that you do not have an office in Blackham? Is this a issue? No because like all modern law firms we depend on technology to assist us in our firm to ensure that matters are dealt with expeditiously. Your proximity to our office is not significant. We are also authorised by the Solicitors Regulation Authority to carry out work throughout England and Wales (which obviously includes Blackham).

If you are a first time buyer what additional costs can we anticipate? If you are using a Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA this firm are required to make certain procedures to make sure release of those funds including any bonus. If you complete the quote you will see there is an check box for Help to Buy ISA or Lifetime ISA. Please chose yes if you have one. You will usually save on Stamp Duty Land Tax which will be nil up to three hundred thousand pounds. If you press “yes” to the “First Time Buyer” toggle on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

What Stamp Duty if I am buying a second home in Blackham? Buyers of additional residential properties, such as second homes and buy-to-let properties, will have to pay an extra 3% in on top of current rates of Stamp Duty Land Tax for each band for all property over £40k. If you press “yes” to the “Buy to Let/Second Owner” question on the conveyancing quote the correct rate will calculate for you.

If we are buying a flat what additional disbursements can we anticipate? This is one tricky area where we cannot give you all the disbursements up front in our quote. This is because leases vary in their requirements and also the costs charged by freeholder and management companies also vary. They can also be two parties to deal with i.e a landlords and management companies who both charge. These charges therefore vary considerably with some leasehold purchases the fees can be as low as £10 but in extreme cases the costs charged can be around £650. This is why the government is considering regulating this area.

If we are selling a leasehold what additional expenses can we anticipate? We cannot give you all the figures up front in our estimate. The costs charged by freeholder and management companies will vary for providing responses often in a pro forma response called LPE1. The charge for this varies from company to company often it is approximately £2500 but is can be more in unusual cases. Also in some cases you may not be charged – this will be restricted usually to either share of freehold where the residents run the management or very small buildings such as a single house converted into two maisonettes.

About Blackham.

Blackham is a village in the Wealden district of East Sussex. It lies within the Withyham civil parish. Its nearest town is Royal Tunbridge Wells, which lies approximately 5.3 miles (8.5 km) east from the village. The village is situated on the East Sussex-Kent border.

The name Blackham (Black Hamlet) comes from the village being known as the resting place for smugglers returning from the coast with their booty as it was exactly one day’s ride from Dover. At the time, it was described as a ‘den of iniquity’ due to the raucous and often violent behaviour of the smugglers.

Hever Castle (the childhood home of Anne Boleyn), Penshurst Place and Bolebroke Castle, all regularly frequented by Henry VIII are all within 4 miles of Blackham as is the village of Hartfield – the home of Christopher Robin, Winnie-the-Pooh, and the actual “Pooh Bridge” location in Ashdown Forest where people still play poohsticks.
